You would think by now I would never, ever say to myself this can't get worse. When Kyle spiked a fever on Sunday I assumed that he had the virus that Alex had on Thursday and Friday. When he started with symptoms similar to the stomach flu we assumed that he had that virus but because his bowels are not working right anyway I again..(my bad) assumed that this is how the virus was coming out. I never thought that both Alex and Jack would get the stomach flu and fever also...never even crossed my mind. Until last night when Jack spiked a fever and Alex crawled into my bed this morning complaining of a belly ache. To say the you know what has hit the fan would be an understatement. Poor Alex, in one week two different illnesses both bad. She's so weak. My bath tub is working in overdrive. As for Kyle, we are now battling blood sugar issues, he gets hypoglycemic...he has dumping syndrome from all the stomach surgeries he has had and the pedialyte is not cutting it. So basically this am I've had to start pushing his food again, he's now mixed half and half peptamen junior and his pedialyte...he'll have to stay on the feeds until we get him back up to full feeds...his poor bowels have just had it. If we can't maintain this we'll be off to the hospital. His Dr is amazing and knows we can handle alot here so she's put it my hands when to make that call...
Sooo in a nut shell...it's pretty tense around here...but we are all here in this house and that in itself is a blessing.

Kyle's sick..really sick. It started with a fever on Sunday and has turned into him not tolerating any food through his g tube..I'm on my last resort tonight of trying to run some pedialyte, if he can't tolerate that we are off to the hospital in the am...poor little guy...his heart rate has been elevated but so far I have not had to increase his oxygen. Just hoping you all could keep my little guy in your thoughts.
